4 questions to ask your wedding planner: Your guide for the best way to experience your Maui elopement or wedding ceremony.
Aloha from Maui, home to the most pristine and scenic beaches on Earth. Couples flock from around the world to celebrate their commitment ceremonies to each other on the edge of the warm Pacific. There are so many details to consider when planning your wedding or elopement that choosing a professional wedding planner is an indispensable resource to making your vision real. In our 15 years of experience Marry Me Maui has compiled a list of some of the most important considerations you should discuss with your wedding planner to best experience your elopement or wedding ceremony.
Beach weddings, elopements and vow renewals are very popular with our clients for several reasons; the locations are beautiful, there is no additional fee involved in setting up on the beach except for the state permit which we provide, and a casual beach wedding with your toes in the sand is an experience that only a select few get to experience in their lifetimes. While all the beaches in Hawai'i are public, there is a limit of 30 for all Maui beach wedding ceremonies.
Couples always ask about the best time of year or the best time of day, they ask about incorporating a luau or other event into the plan. Our experience has been that mornings are a great time for a wedding on Maui. Beaches are less crowded and the colors of the ocean are more saturated. Summer is a drier season on Maui and while any time of year can produce rain it is less likely during the summer months. Winter is generally warm and clear here but the chance of rain increases. Remember, when you book a Maui beach wedding, there is no covered back up location in case of inclement weather! That being said, it is rare to have to walk between the raindrops to get to your destination.
We all have our favorite Maui beach wedding locations. A seasoned wedding professional can let you know which beaches near your hotel or condo are optimal for your Maui wedding. Conditions change regularly; construction, storms, traffic, all have an impact on your experience Be sure to cover those considerations with your wedding planner.
Maui is home to some of the best wedding photographers in the world. Check the portfolio on your wedding planners website. Marry me Maui is owned and operated by a two person partnership of planner / photographer. Your photographer for your elopement ceremony will also be the part owner of the company, assuring that you will receive the best service and imagery available.

Eye contact. That's our tip for couples today. Nothing is more important than eye contact for those memorable wedding photos. Most of our Maui Wedding ceremonies last about 15 minutes; short and sweet. 15 or 20 minutes for your photographer to capture something that happens once in your lifetime. Not to put too much pressure on the wedding couple, but the beauty of your Maui wedding images depend not only on the professionalism of your photographer, but also by your facial expressions, relaxed attitude and eye contact with each other and the camera. During the ceremony, your attention should be on the person you are marrying. Looking into each others eyes during the vows, lei ceremony and ring exchange not only creates incredible images but also bonds the two of you during what is a very intimate moment.
Our clients almost always ask us what is the perfect time of day for their Maui Wedding. There's no right or wrong answer to this question rather there's only your plans for the day and what kind of imagery you want to see from your Maui Wedding Photographer. The late afternoon, usually 1 hour before sunset, is our most popular time for our Maui Wedding celebrations. The light tends to soften, the temperatures cool a bit and the beach goers leave for their hotels and dinner. Of course, there's also that famous Maui sunset which is spectacular most of the time.
Even on Maui the sunset is not guaranteed but it's a good bet you'll get some shots like the ones above when you schedule your Maui wedding for the late afternoon. One of the most common scheduling conflicts is the Luau. Most luau's begin around 4 or 5 pm so our luau clients want a ceremony at 3. Not a great idea, especially in the summer when mid afternoon temperatures can reach 92 to 94. The sand is ho…
